Thinking of them

The newlyweds, Bharat and Arpana, had arrived in Jaipur from the wedding in her village and performed another ceremony at home the next morning. Bharat's mother exchanged rice with Arpana. It's now a fantastic memory and they are special friends!

  1. Julie and I think it is great that you travelled to India for this wedding. What an experience. Jaipur is an amazing place, even without a wedding to highlight the trip.

  2. Now that's what I've been waiting for...a beautiful bride! I agree with Dave since I have visited India in the past. Miss the lovely, gentle people, but, oh, so wish that something positive could be done about the grinding poverty.

  10. Great thing that you could experience this, lifelong memories. And I want a fantastic turban like Bharat's!
    Bharat by the way means India in Hindi.
